Organization of Medical Records

Usually, the record will be organized in terms of the temporal sequence of events with the latest admission located at the front of the medical record. After the patient is discharged from the hospital, a summary of the patient's diagnoses and treatments may be prepared by the attending physician and inserted at the front of the medical record. This summary can be used as a guide to ensure that reports are not overlooked. Abstracting should, however, directly be done from the actual reports in the record and not from the point of view of the attending physician.
